About Me

Thank you for considering me to walk with you on your journey. If you are reaching out for help, I know that you are standing in a difficult moment that may seem impossible to work through. However, I believe that we are created to do life together and that is the goal of my practice. I strongly connect with the saying "Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls..." - Khalil Gibran. There is no guarantee that life will be easy, but I believe that our struggles can not only make us stronger, but give us purpose and meaning.
I am a proud Penn State graduate where I received my Bachelors Degree from and then moved to Delaware to start my Masters program. I completed my Masters in my hometown at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. Over the years, I have been blessed to work with multiple different areas of concern including trauma, substance abuse/addiction, abuse, spirituality (faith based), forgiveness, self-esteem, single mothers/fathers, peer or relationship conflict, adolescents, young adults, depression, codependency, chronic health issues and anxiety disorders. I also have a lot of experience and understanding when it comes to chronic health issues and how that impacts someone and family members. I have a lot of compassion, drive, and feel that one of my best qualities is that I am very authentic and I utilize that in therapy because I think it allows a client to feel that they can be more open.
I currently focus a significant amount of my practice on mood/anxiety disorders, relationship concerns/codependency, trauma/forgiveness. I am always honored to hear someone's story and through acknowledging their pain, walk with them through navigating the next steps that will help them to achieve their goals for themselves and their lives. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, dialectical behavior therapy, solution-focused therapy techniques, mindfulness and positivity techniques in therapy. I also can utilize faith in therapy if that is requested. I truly believe that everyone's story is important and that is how I view my clients and the circumstances they are walking through when they reach out.

Written by J.E. on Dec 03, 2018 after counseling with Jenna for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, eating disorders, and self esteem

I've been working with Jenna Bolton for only a couple of months, but she seems very knowledgable yet still down to earth. I'm nowhere near "recovered" and I have a long way to go, but I am confident that she will in time help me with my emotional issues.

Jenna is very understanding and knowledgeable. I feel like I’ve known her for awhile. I can tell her anything and she doesn’t judge me.

Jenna is a wonderful counselor. She gives good advice, is friendly, and I actually feel she is helping me cope with my own insecurities, and learn to get over them.
